Swim 22 Challenge – Complete

Back in March I wrote a blog post about starting the Swim 22 challenge raising money for Diabetes UK. That seems like such a long time ago!

Now I’ve swam the distance of the channel in just 12 weeks! The support has been incredible and the JustGiving page has raised £327 for Diabetes UK, I can’t thank everyone enough for donating.  And that support kept me going when I felt like I was struggling with the sheer distance some weeks.

It hasn’t been easy – I’ve had shoulder problems from the distance, which has meant my own hobby of weight lifting has taken a back seat!  But I feel a great sense of achievement and pride having realised how far 22 miles really is. 

I would have never thought about doing something like this before, and would completely encourage people to go out of their comfort zone for good causes.

Our JustGiving page is still open for anybody who wants to top up the sponsorship, all donations greatly appreciated.

Here’s to maybe completing this or some other challenge next year!
